We have eaten at this pub in the past (approximately a years ago) and in fairness on previous occasions thought the food very good. But something has changed - not sure if the pub is under new ownership or the chef has changed, but the attention to detail is no longer there. I emailed them 5 days in advance to... More

We travelled from Horley in Surrey to take our Labrador Alisha for a long walk, after we decided that a spare of the moment lunch out would be lovely. We have been to the Abinger Hatch about a year ago for a roast and it was very good. We came in at midday and we're welcome by the two middle... More

Welcoming - great food as always. Open fire on cold days and best food around IMHO ! Starters are great and their fish specials wonderful. Always a smile behind the bar. Garden is welcoming to kids and the entire place per friendly.

Dog friendly, great food and marvellous ambience. After a robust walk with an enthusiastic hound a well prepared and convivial "full on" roast is just the ticket!

In the heartland of the Surrey Hills the Abinger Hatch is a fantastic restaurant/pub in a beautiful village. Large open plan interior but split into separate areas including lovely leather furniture and an open fire. In keeping with the local popular pastimes of walking and cycling the Hatch has flagstone, solid floors and actively encourages walkers, dogs etc. We visited... More

30 years years since I went to the Abinger Hatch, having moved to Australia in 1988.It was even better than I remember. Very quaint, very countrified, nice log fires, great friendly service and great food, great beer and a lovely English country narrow laneways location (take a thin car). I had the best warm and runny Scotch egg known to... More

Magical and slightly spooky place in the evening. But food needs improving definitely. Kids fish fingers were just wrong and roast lamb was very hard meat. Starters, deserts and ice cream were very good though.

Great pub to go to for that Sunday lunch great location and friendly staff with reasonable priced menu.
